S: Nine Months
FC: A baby is something you carry inside | you for nine months, in your arms | for three years and in your heart till | the day you die." ~ Mary Mason
1: My precious little baby, I have loved you from the start. You are a tiny miracle Laying closely to my heart. Each day I feel your presence, Each day you quickly grow, Each day your heart beats softly, As only I could know. So, I'll keep this in a special place And remember each year through, Of this special time in my life In the months I carried you.
2: How We Found Out | We found out on March 10, 2010. Daddy had just picked up Mommy from work and said let's go get a pregnancy test. My thoughts were like, isn't it too soon. So we went and got the test, and I took it as soon as I got home. There it was a dark pink line next to a faint pink line, but both lines were there! Mommy was so excited she rushed to Daddy and showed him the test. Daddy was in shock because he asked Mommy are you sure you took the test right LOL.
3: How We Told Our Family & Friends | We bought congratulation cards for all of the grandparents. Daddy's Mom came into town, and we gave her the card. She had this huge smile on her face when she opened it! We went out to HuHot for lunch to celebrate. After that we gave Mommy's Mom & Dad their card, and when they opened it Mommy's Mom shouted it's about time! Daddy's Dad and Grandma opened their card and his Grandma was like my wish came true, she had been wishing for us to have a baby for awhile. Everyone was so happy with the news!
